Texas sends Wilmer Font and Matt West to Myrtle Beach, and Fabio Castillo to minor league camp.
Texas sends Luis Martinez, Dusty Brown, Greg Reynolds, Tanner Scheppers and Michael Kirkman to AAA Round Rock.
Looks like Neal Cotts or Robby Ross as lefty bullpen.
Cotts' hurt himself last night so it looks like Ross, unless they go without a lefty in the pen.
If Ross ends up on the roster, do I win the "Pick to Click" prize? I'm sure it's something like a trip to the Bahamas, right?
I thought I established that the prize was a date with Nolan Ryan's sister?
Now I'm really hoping they move Ross to AAA......
Yes. The prize is that "The Chicken Little Club" meets at your place during every game.
You are free to lock them in a closet and throw away the key, nobody will miss them.
Naw, you've got to have the Chicken Littles to keep the board balanced. Otherwise, there would be nobody to argue with, I mean "converse" with. What fun would that be?
Plus the fact, I don't think I have enough closets....
Who is Randy Henry, you ask? He's the 2nd player received from Baltimore in the Taylor Teagarden trade.
